What it is:
A soft focus, flawless, natural finish is needed when under the scrutiny of a camera in HD. Our foundation applies with a light weight texture. With photography, film and live television using high definition focus, (meaning that the camera and monitor sees everything magnified), HD application has become a part of training for makeup artists in today’s industry. The colors need to stay consistent in all types of lighting, what does not work well in HD is sparkle and shine. Reach for matte bronzers, blush and shadows.
UnderCover HD is not oil based or water based, it is non comedogenic, it does not clog pores. HD foundations use silicones, this creates a protective shield on the skin, allowing it to breathe and retain it's natural moisture.

$16.95 Full Size Net Wt: 30ml – 1.0 fl oz, / Sample size $ 0.49 for 3gms
So I've tried this out for the past 6-8 months, summer and winter,I think i can my views, okay now here i must say , it was the hardest thing to choose when i was placing an order in January , as i have read mixed reviews about this foundation that i got confused , but after 4 days of hard work( i.e was to put in basket , read reviews,and then delete, read reviews , then again put it back ) Finally !! i decided to order it , now came the more HARDEST part : to choose right shade for my NC 30-35 skintone, it took me another day to choose shade, i went through so many blog reviews and swatches(Thank you oxfordjasmine and sirvinya for their swatch posts) and still couldn't make my mind, but reviews on coastal scents actually helped me when i read that ST-05 is match to MAC NC 30 , so i took the risk and ordered it.I am glad that color couldn't be more perfect.This foundation blended in very well with my natural skin tone.Good coverage (Light to medium coverage) and build able without being too cakey.The bottle comes with a pump, the look of pump is a little cheap(Plastic), 2 pumps are enough for me to cover my whole face, if i want total airbrushed flawless finish , i use the third one. I tend to use my fingers when i use any foundation , but this goes well with E.LF powder brush too as its nor very thick and stippling is pretty easy with it.
To be honest I haven't worn the Coastal Scents Undercover HD foundation constantly because I usually don't wear foundation on a daily basis, and i only wear it when i am taking photos or going out in night for a wedding or some formal occasion.
The texture, as I mentioned above its kinda liquid and runny in consistency.But i didn't have any trouble in application
I read reviews where many bloggers said it has a dewy finish , The finish is definately matte.I have Dry skin , so mostly Matt foundations end up flaky on me ,But with this foundation my skin didn't look flaky, it looked just matt, pore less and evenly.
I am wearing Coastal Scents Undercover HD Foundation in above pictures taken on different days , lipstick in Mac Myth and Rimmel n*** delight in the second picture(. You can check my Second pic more photos here)
Over all this foundation lasts well, it has a great finish and is fairly inexpensive. However the color choices are really hard to match since they are only available online.
You can buy it online here
